JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- Three Junction City residents were displaced after their mobile home caught fire.

Junction City fire officials say they responded to the call around 10 p.m. Thursday, along with Harrisburg Fire Department and Lane Fire Authority.

Fire officials say the home was up in flames when they arrived and it took about 25 minutes to put it out.

"Mobile homes are always kind of difficult, just due to their lightweight construction and how fast they burn, but we got it out pretty quick," said Junction City Fire Dept. Capt. Jason Peterson.

Peterson says the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but says according to the home owners, it may have started from a heater.

The American Red Cross is helping the family with temporary housing, food and clothing.
